USB 3.0

USB 3.0 achieves the much higher performance by way of a number of technical changes. The enhancements to Super Speed USB are not just for higher data rates, but for improving the interaction between device and host computer. In a nutshell, any high-bandwidth device that works with USB 2.0 will become better if updated with USB 3.0 support. With its promised 4.8 Gbps speed, the standard will find its way into some products that previously weren't USB territory.
